So wait a minute, you mean that Constantine can murder thousands of people--family included--and be an Arian, yet, the Church can Canonize him a Saint, but if I don't give up masturbation I'll go to Orthodox Hell? You gotta be kidding me.
It makes paradoxes of all sorts. That's why I don't view Constantine as a saint. Masturbation I would consider a sin and self serving, but it is not my place to say if you would go to hell or not.
Point being, James, I am VERY glad you are not killing tens of thousands of people, or plan on executing your future wife and son. EDIT **** BY the way, I am not judging you for this at all. It's just my opinion. Though I don't suffer from this sin, I DO suffer from many others. Quick to anger for example.
When I read theology, there are some wonderful saints. True role models of how we can increase our worship and faith in God. Some are such examples, that it honestly makes me depressed that I am not doing a better job. Reading about Constantine though... Wow. Look, I know we are all supposed to be humble and all, and focus on our own sin.... but... seriously... The kid @ Sandy Hook killed way less people than this Orthodox Saint. (executed post Nicea) He executed his own wife by having her suffocated in an extremely hot bath... His son in a prison. This was in 326. (forgive us our trespasses)
332 and 334, he led armies to attack the Goths leading to over 100 thousand Goth deaths!
So anyway, yes, there are some theological saints I read about and feel like a monster... Then I read about Constantine, and feel a bit better.
